Who among us hasn’t done this/wanted to do this on a golf course?

Then again, who among us is anywhere near the golf player Rory McIlroy is?

McIlroy let his 3-iron go into the drink Friday at the WGC-Cadillac Championship.

“It was heat of the moment, and I mean, if it had of been any other club I probably wouldn’t have. But I didn’t need a 3-iron for the rest of the round, so I thought, why not?” McIlroy told the Sun-Sentinel. “It isn’t one of my proudest moments. But you know, walked away with a bogey and did OK from then.”

That iron didn’t stay in the water for very long.

The club was found:
